How do you find out if a vacant land you want to purchase already has utilities installed?
I think you can pull records for the city to see what developments have occurred on the property. In Colorado, they are really transparent on the information they provide on the internet. Check your state for online property records with your City clerk’s government site or call and ask if there is internet access: otherwise you have to go to the City Clerk’s office.
As the company, how do I correctly fill out a Stock Power as part of a stock purchase agreement?
The Stock Power in question evidently is an exhibit to a Stock Purchase Agreement by which the OP is purchasing restricted stock that is subject to forfeiture or repurchase by the company, entirely or in part, probably based on how long the OP continues to work with the company.Yes, just signing is the proper thing to do (from the company’s perspective) because at this time it is not known whether, or to what extent, the OP’s shares will be subject to forfeiture or repurchase.So, if and when the time for forfeiture or repurchase arrives, the company will fill in the rest of the Stock Power to transfer the forfeited or repurchased shares to the company - you will keep the shares that have vested as of that time.For the OP’s comparison, and for the benefit of Quorans who are not familiar with such Stock Powers, here is the text of the instructions that I put at the bottom of a Stock Power:(Instruction: Please do not fill in any blanks other than signing at the signature line. The purpose of this Stock Power is to enable the Company to exercise its right to reacquire Restricted Shares in the circumstances provided in the Restricted Stock Agreement without requiring an additional signature by the Grantee.)
How do I purchase a vacant lot in Detroit as an out-of-towner?
Nah - you need to contact the DLBA (Detroit Land Bank Authority) as they hold the deeds to any blighted property that isn't already listed in Wayne County auctions. Visit buildingdetroit.org.
I own land in central California and wish to generate solar power and sell it to PG&E. How easy/fast is it to get a power purchase agreement? Are there any other options?
This is a great question. PPAs are a fairly standard document used in the solar industry these days. The process is not as straight forward as you might have found out in your search. My legal team has done some of the largest PPA deals in the USA and I would be happy to lend a hand to help you get this project going. I also have access to capital to finance a project of your size. Please shoot me an email if you would like to talk further: firstname.lastname@example.org
Recently moved to Florida and there's vacant land next to my house I'm interested in buying, but I have no clue who owns the land. How do I go about finding out who owns it? Who do I contact?
Florida has very liberal public records laws that also apply to all counties (which are considered an extension of state government). Each county has a property appraiser who would have records of all properties in the county. Many even post this info online in a searchable database. This will give you the property address, legal description, and mist important of all owner's name and mailing address. You could also check with your county clerk or clerk of courts for the latest warranty deed on the property, which could also give you that info.
